Chance meeting of entrepreneurs creates united voice on issue through "Life Empowered" podcast, produced by Redeem & Restore Center
Ann Riphenburg's business, reCollect2 Company, is co-sponsoring a new podcast of the Redeem & Restore Center, a Pewaukee-based organization dedicated to shining a light on the dark issue of human trafficking. The podcast, Life Empowered, features stories of redemption, encouragement and inspiration.
Chaplain Krista Hull of the Redeem & Restore Center interviews people who have emerged from adversity, significant life trials and even human trafficking. The podcast follows a premise that every human has a worthy purpose, and gifts and abilities, to contribute to the betterment of society. People are not objects to be owned.
Life Empowered can be found on the Redeem & Restore website and Apple podcast.
Riphenburg and Hull met at a Waukesha County Business Alliance event. Riphenburg was impressed both by RRC's mission, and Hull's energetic approach and insightful strategy to love, support and restore victims and survivors of human trafficking.
Riphenburg and Hull were recently recognized for their entrepreneurial efforts by The KNOW Women in the inaugural KNOW WOMEN MKE book (https://theknowwomen.com/
Human trafficking is notoriously underreported. As shocking as these numbers are, they likely represent only a fraction of the actual problem:
· Human Trafficking is a $150 billion global business (Forbes.com 2/2/2020)
· 79 percent of human trafficking is sexual exploitation;
· 20 percent of trafficking victims are children (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime)

"Redeem & Restore was built on the foundation that no matter your past circumstance, or what others have told you, you have immense value!" Hull said. "Our core mission is to provide guidance, hope and inspiration to survivors of human trafficking."
